How to Come Out on Top When Dealing With Negative Reviews

Reputation has surpassed economic and business model concerns as the #1 strategic risk for large businesses, according to a 2013 Deloitte survey. With an increase in online reputation attacks, many companies are afraid they cannot control public perception. After all, virtually anyone with a desire to harm a business can easily do so by posting false statements online. Every solution to an online reputation attack is fact-dependent, with circumstances such as jurisdiction, available claims, potential damage, client's budget, and attacker's characteristics needing to be considered. Despite the uniqueness of each attack, a company should not wait until it is harmed to act. Instead, it should have a program in place to prevent or mitigate damage. This ondemand webinar will teach you how to protect, monitor, and defend against online reputation attacks.
